At Vivacity Tech, we have always believed in the importance of building a great company that strikes a balance between profitability and social conscience. It started upon incorporation and continues to propel why we do business.
As the first and only Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) to provide technology to schools, we believe we have a responsibility to ensure our nation’s students succeed. Our efforts go far beyond selling products and begins with our team forming long-lasting partnerships focused on school districts’ success.
As we have grown, so too has our opportunity to make a positive impact in schools across the country. It started with donating technology to classrooms. It has since expanded into providing every employee with special PTO for volunteering activities and donating a portion of our profits back into the education system.
Our story began in the Spring of 2018 with a single device case and a vision to be an all-inclusive K-12 EdTech solutions provider. Today, we are privileged to serve over 2,000 school districts nationwide ranging in all sizes. How did we achieve this growth in a few short years? By doing business better.
When industry veteran and CEO, Eli Maloley, brought Vivacity Tech to life he did so by setting the foundation of the company on one solid principle: Be Better. Provide better service, better products, and better solutions at a better value; all while bettering society.
Since our inception, we’ve worked tirelessly to achieve this goal. We’ve brought all services under one roof, keeping costs low and streamlining the buyer’s journey in the process. We’ve opened two full Chromebook repair centers, cultivated top-tier partnerships with leading Chromebook manufacturers and recently increased our customer reach with a second office in Greenville, South Carolina.
We’ve hired a slew of product engineers and designers to manufacture a full suite of storage solutions including smart charging carts, cabinets and device cases along with Chromebook accessories. We’ve added curriculum developers to our team and offer a Student Repair Academy giving students hands-on training and certifications to repair broken mobile devices. Finally, to round out the total one-to-one deployment package, we developed our very own award-winning asset management software, Customer Central.
We stand out for bringing unrivaled energy and innovation to the EdTech industry, giving back along the way, all for the sake of education and our customers.
At Vivacity Tech, we’re passionate about creating an inclusive company culture that values and promotes diversity. We believe a diverse workplace drives better value, better decisions and better products. To that end, we’ve sought out the highest performers in the industry resulting in a gender-balanced leadership team, hired diversity consultants to help ensure we stay on par with our company initiatives, and established a partnership with the city of St. Paul to give under-resourced youth on-the-job training and professional development. We believe building a team from the ground up that is diverse in people, perspectives and experiences allows us to make smarter business decisions.
Public Benefit Corporations have what’s called a Triple-Bottom-Line; “People, Planet, Profits” – in that order. From Professional Development allowances to robust benefits to incredible incentives, we ensure our People are taken care of. What’s really cool? Our desire for excellence. The passionate, collaborative and friendly environment is tangible as we ensure our teammates succeed in doing what we do best – driving change for the better. Come check us out!
